Figure 5

Motions of large structures late in pattern development. Two images from FJ7 macrofiber population 916 (frames 150 and 444) are superimposed upon one another and false colored black and white respectively. Parallel motions of structures in the same direction indicate the effect of convection currents. Time elapsed between the earlier and later frames was 441 minutes.
